HAPS GOING GREENER Please do your part to help the HAPS 2009 conference be “greener”:
Use reusable water bottles – compliments of ADInstruments – instead of disposable water bottles.
Choose the “green approach” to hotel linens and towels while staying at the hotel
Use recycle bins provided by the hotel and by the Community College of Baltimore County.
Recycle your name tag holder at the end of the conference. If you’re attending workshops, please stop by the Biology Office (D‐203) on the Catonsville Campus on the last day of the workshops to drop off your name tag holder. Holders in good condition can be used for future conferences.

ABOUT HAPS The Board of Directors makes the final policy decisions that steer the organization, but most of the work of HAPS is accomplished by the committees. All of these people (including the Conference Planning Committee and Marketing Manager) are unpaid volunteers. A variety of committees will hold meetings over the lunch hour on the first day of workshops (Tuesday, 26 May). A complete list of committees and their lunch‐time meeting locations will be included in your packet at registration. Please attend the meeting of the committee that interests and find out first‐ hand how HAPS works and how you can get involved.
The Human Anatomy & Physiology Society (HAPS) was founded in 1989, after three successful national conferences promoting communication among teachers of human anatomy and physiology at the college level. HAPS was, and is, an organization of Human Anatomy & Physiology instructors. Excellence in undergraduate instruction in Anatomy & Physiology is a primary interest of all members. Since the Fall of 1997, there has been central administrative support for the processing of memberships and annual registrations, but HAPS remains primarily a volunteer organization.

Welcome to the THIRD SEASON of our professional continuing education program! The goal of HAPS Institute (HAPS‐I) is to provide deeper, directed learning experiences for faculty of human anatomy and physiology—thus keeping HAPS members at the leading edge of teaching A&P. To meet our goal, HAPS‐I offers specific short courses in topics important in teaching anatomy and/or physiology. HAPS‐I is particularly interested in addressing topics that are often perceived to be: hard to understand, hard to learn, and hard to teach. All of our courses have two major components: 1. Active review of core concepts and integration of recent discoveries and concepts; 2. Exploration of established, new, and emerging methods of teaching and learning in the undergraduate anatomy and/or physiology course. The University of Washington (Seattle) provides graduate biology credit in biology to course participants. Four courses are coordinated with this Annual Conference! Advances in Anatomy & Physiology 2009 (2 credits) Advanced Neuroendocrine Biology (2 credits) Advanced Respiratory Biology (2 credits) Advanced Cardiovascular Biology: The Heart at Rest and at Work (2 credits) Participants in all HAPS‐I courses produce a teaching module (for example, a case study or problem set) that is peer‐reviewed and possibly published in a professional, peer‐reviewed online publication. Everyone registered for a HAPS‐I course receives specific information on required sessions to attend at this meeting. And an elegant ribbon (and perhaps a sporty HAPS‐I shirt or attractive pin). The Best Practices in Hybrid and Online Teaching of A&P, now in progress, is completely online and therefore independent of this conference. 2008 MAJOR HAPS‐I PROGRAM SPONSORS Why would you want to participate in HAPS‐I courses?

This event does not include persons registered as “guests”.
Meet the Chairs
Sunday, 24 May, 5:00‐6:00 PM, The Ground Floor, 1st Floor Chairs of HAPS committees will be in the Ground Floor lounge on the first floor of the Renaissance Harborplace Hotel for the hour before we leave for the USS Constellation. Visit with the committee chairs in an informal atmosphere and learn about the fascinating work being done and how you can get involved. This is a free event and no pre‐registration or ticket is required.
Dinner and Music on the USS Constellation Sunday, 24 May, 6:00‐9:00 PM, USS Constellation Museum (http://www.constellation.org/welcome_vid.html) Enjoy the beauty of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor aboard the historic USS Constellation. Tour the ship and listen to the music of local band 5 Oaks (http://5oaks.mysite.com/) while enjoying a delicious buffet meal. Walk the deck of the last all‐sail ship built by the US Navy. Launched in 1854 as a sloop of war, this ship takes you back to a by‐gone era. She is a prime example of Baltimore ship building. Among the important events in her history are tours of duty in the Mediterranean and off the African coast. As flagship of the African Squadron, she played an important role in freeing Africans who had been captured and were to be sold as slaves. The ship also served as a training vessel for the Naval Academy for many years until her decommission. Guides in period uniform will fire the cannon and take you on a tour of the ship. Bring your imagination and your appetite! This event has an extra cost and tickets are required. If you did not pre‐order tickets, check with Conference Registration to see if there are any available.
Annual Conference – Pre‐banquet Happy Hour Monday, 25 May, 6:00‐7:00 PM, Maryland Foyer B, C and D Mingle with your HAPS colleagues for drinks and appetizers before the banquet. Many choose to dress more formally for this event, but it is not required. This event is included with your banquet ticket and with guest registration. If you did not pre‐order tickets, check with Conference Registration to see if there are any available. The pre‐banquet happy hour is sponsored in part by John Wiley & Sons Publishers.
Annual Conference Banquet, Keynote Performance and Dancing Monday, 25 May, 7:00‐11:00 PM, Maryland Ballroom C, D and F Get ready for a special evening with a real Baltimore flare! After dinner, Tony Tsendeas, Baltimore School for the Arts, presents his acclaimed one man show: Frank the Body Snatcher. The show is based on the real life exploits of a man named Frank, who in 1812 was ostensibly hired as a custodian by the newly established University of Maryland Medical School. His real function, however, was as a Body Snatcher or "Resurrection Man.” It was Frank's job to supply the school with "fresh subjects" for the anatomy labs and lectures. Tony Tsendeas vividly brings Frank to life in this tour‐de‐force performance. Darkly comic in tone, the show boldly recreates an offbeat slice of actual history. This event has an extra cost and tickets are required. If you did not pre‐order tickets, check with Conference Registration to see if there are any available. The banquet and pre‐banquet happy hour are included in the cost of guest registration.
Baltimore Orioles Baseball vs the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, 26 May, 7:05 PM, Camden Yards A special HAPS section is reserved in beautiful Oriole Park at Camden Yards – a short walk from the conference hotel – to see the Baltimore Orioles play the Toronto Blue Jays. Game time is 7:05 and our section is 324, an Upper Reserved section between home plate and first base. Camden Yards is a beautiful venue for baseball and the game is sure to be fun. This event has an extra cost and tickets are required.

The Development of Neuronal Growth, Survival and Connectivity in the Peripheral Nervous System
David Ginty, Ph. D. Professor, Department of Neuroscience Howard Hughes Medical Institute Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine The function of the adult nervous system is dependent upon trillions of neural connections. Not only must the organism generate neuronal numbers appropriate for the needs of targets being innervated, but it must also instruct these neurons to extend axons, elaborate dendrites, and generate synapses to establish proper connectivity. The goals of Dr. Ginty’s laboratory are to identify key molecular events underlying neuronal growth and survival and establish the principles governing development of the vertebrate nervous system. Dr. David Ginty received his B.S. in Biology from Mount St. Mary’s College and Ph.D. in Physiology from East Carolina University School of Medicine. He then completed postdoctoral training in Molecular Neuroscience, first at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute at Harvard Medical School where he researched the mechanism of action of nerve growth factor (NGF). He later moved to the Department of Microbiology and Molecular Genetics at Harvard Medical School. There Ginty demonstrated that when NGF binds to its receptor on a nerve cell it “turns on” the activity of a molecule called CREB (cAMP response element binding). In the cell’s nucleus, CREB, a transcription factor, regulates the expression of a large cohort of genes that control growth, differentiation, and survival of neurons. But to study how NGF regulates CREB, Ginty needed a way to easily measure whether CREB was phosphorylated—in other words, in its active form—or not. In a technical feat, Ginty developed the first antibody that specifically recognizes the phosphorylated form of CREB and used it to study CREB function and regulation. Dr. Ginty is currently a professor of neuroscience at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He has worked for nearly two decades in the fields of developmental neurobiology and growth factor signaling. The Ginty laboratory studies the functions and mechanisms of action of neurotrophic factors and neurotrophic cues during neural development. Current interests of the lab include: the mechanisms of nerve growth factor control of gene expression; mechanisms of long‐range retrograde NGF signaling in neurons; axon guidance mechanisms during the establishment of PNS and CNS circuits; and identification of growth 20
factor/receptor systems that control survival and growth of PNS neurons. Most projects make use of chemical, reverse or forward genetic approaches in the mouse to address how neurotrophic factors and their receptors control neuronal survival, axon growth and circuit formation in the developing peripheral nervous system. – Update #

The impacts of studying normal and pathophysiology in living human brain and the applications of this research will be discussed. This update will also describe the recent increasing importance on accelerating drug development for treating important major neuropsychiatric disorders. Dr. Dean F. Wong received his M.D. from University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine and his Ph.D. in Radiology Health Sciences from Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Wong currently is a Professor of Radiology, Psychiatry, Neuroscience and Environmental Health Sciences and Vice Chair of Radiology Research, Administration and Training at Johns Hopkins University. His research involves the design, development and application of radiopharmaceuticals imaged by positron emission tomography (PET) and single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) for the study of in vivo brain chemistry. His research extends from collaborations in basic chemistry through pharmacology, imaging of small and large animals and healthy human subjects as well as the study of volunteers with neuropsychiatric illness. He is a pioneer in the development of dopamine radiotracers, participating in the team that carried out the first D2 dopamine PET radioligand, 11C‐n‐methylspiperone in the early 1980s. He is currently the principal investigator of two NIH shared Instrumentation grants for research PET scanning with a special emphasis on neuropsychiatry. His most recent grant and efforts have led to the installation of the high resolution research tomograph (HRRT), one of only 15 scanners of the highest resolution for brain imaging (2‐3 mm) in the world. He leads a group of approximately 15 scientists, mathematical modelers, chemists, psychologists, psychiatrists and nuclear medicine physicians. His research is primarily NIH funded and currently includes studies involving Tourette’s syndrome, Rett Syndrome, alcoholism, cocaine abuse and schizophrenia. He is also involved in collaborations with Pharma in the development of a number of CNS drugs, both at discovery Phase I and beyond level and 22
using PET and SPECT as potential surrogate markers helps in the decision making of future drug development including collaborations with NIDA, the NIDA drug development group. He is currently an NIH‐NIDA K24 mid‐career award holder and carries out a number of functions in mentoring in this role and in his role as Vice Chair for Research Administration and Training. In this latter role, he provides faculty oversight of the Radiology Research Office, which manages pre‐ and post‐award grants, and in addition provides training functions, including mentoring in relationship to career development especially for grant applications. – Update #

Neural Control of Breathing
Ralph Fregosi, Ph. D. Professor, Department of Physiology & Arizona Research Laboratories Division of Neurobiology, University of Arizona Dr. Fregosi is sponsored by the American Physiological Society
The purpose of our conversation is to provide some ideas for teaching undergraduate students about the control of breathing. The control of breathing is complex and controversial, so it can be very difficult to teach this subject, particularly for non‐specialists. However, teaching this subject for 21 years has helped me devise some simple ways to make the control of breathing accessible to students with very diverse backgrounds. The students first need to be convinced that learning how to think in an integrative manner is crucial for understanding any aspect of physiology, but especially the control of breathing. After all, ventilatory control requires the student to understand central pattern generators, how premotor and motoneurons are connected anatomically, and how afferent feedback from central and peripheral chemoreceptors and afferents in the lungs, airways and joints alter the activity of respiratory muscles, and hence the rate of lung ventilation. The students must constantly be reminded that this, in turn, serves to maintain homeostasis by regulating blood gases and pH. Dr. Ralph Fregosi was born in Boston, MA in 1954. He received a B.S. at UMass‐Boston, an M.S. at the University of Arizona and his Ph.D. at University of Wisconsin‐Madison, in 1985. He was a postdoctoral fellow in physiology at Dartmouth Medical School from January 1986‐August 1988, that same month that he began a tenure‐track faculty position at University of Arizona. He is at present Professor of Physiology and Neurobiology at University of Arizona. He also serves as an Associate Editor for the Journal of Applied Physiology. His research covers two main areas within the general framework of control of breathing: 1) development of neurotransmission in brainstem respiratory neurons, with particular emphasis on how development is altered by prenatal nicotine exposure; 2) how the nervous system control the respiratory‐related neural drive to muscles of the tongue. Awards from the NIH and the American Heart Association fund the research. Dr. Fregosi teaches Physiology 202 (undergraduate Human Anatomy & Physiology), Physiology 603 (graduate level human physiology); Physiology 620 (graduate‐level systems neurophysiology) and Case‐based instruction in cardiovascular, pulmonary and renal physiology for first year medical students.

The Human Brain and Learning Norbert Myslinksi, Ph. D. Associate Professor of Neurosciences, Department of Biomedical Sciences University of Maryland Dental School Recent neuroscience research has given us insight into how the human brain learns and remembers. Understanding how the brain understands will make us better teachers, better students and better parents. By focusing on key concepts of cellular and anatomical neuroscience, we can demonstrate how the brain is built for change. What parts of the brain are involved in attention, emotions, stress, sleep, vision, and hearing, and how can we use them to improve learning? Why are plasticity and synaptic facilitation the basis of learning? How do gender and age differences in the brain affect learning? Examining the neuroanatomical correlates of learning will help us answer these questions. Dr. Myslinski is a neuroscientist at the University of Maryland and Stevenson University. He received his research training in sensory‐motor integration at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Tufts University in Boston and Bristol University in England. Currently, his interest is neuroscience education for the professional and non‐professional, for which he took additional courses at Harvard and Johns Hopkins Universities. He has created, directed or taught 40 courses to 20,000 nursing, dental, graduate, undergraduate, high school, and elementary school students, and students in prisons and special schools. Recently, he has been involved in virtual reality courses, long‐distance education and on‐line courses through Laureate, Inc. He has been a member of 12 journal review committees, 7 grant review committees, and 22 state or national committees including literacy and ethics committees. He chaired 26 workshops, was an invited presenter 78 times, editor of 3 newsletters, awarded 15 grants and published 58 articles and book chapters. He is past‐president of the Baltimore Chapter of the Society for Neuroscience and Director of Maryland Brain Awareness Week. He is the founder of the International Brain Bee, a neuroscience competition for high school students with chapters in 75 cities and 12 countries around the world. He appeared 37 times on radio and television. He is the recipient of the Alumni‐of‐the‐Year Awards from St. Mary’s High School and Canisius College in Buffalo, N.Y.; the Society for Neuroscience Distinguished Teaching Award; and the University of Maryland Founder’s Day Award.

Neuronal Regeneration and Gonadal Steroids as Therapy
Kathryn Jones, Ph. D. Professor of Cell Biology, Neurobiology & Anatomy, and Otolaryngology, Director of the Neuroscience Institute Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine
Dr. Jones is sponsored by the American Association of Anatomists Gonadal steroids are neurotrophic agents capable of affecting many neuronal properties associated with successful regeneration. In the human neurological disorder, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, a steroid hormone receptor deficiency has been postulated to play an etiological role in the development of that disease. Administration of testosterone at the time of facial nerve injury in adult rodents accelerates functional recovery from facial paralysis. These steroidal effects on nerve regeneration are steroid receptor‐mediated and appear to involve an augmentation of the intrinsic molecular program of regenerating facial neurons. In addition, gonadal steroids may be inherently neuroprotective, and help prevent trauma‐induced neuronal loss in the CNS. Dr. Jones is also exploring the ability of steroids to improve outcome from spinal cord injury in rodent models. The long‐term objective is to extend these studies to the human. Translational neuroscience research utilizing gonadal steroids in conjunction with electrical stimulation is being done with Otolaryngology residents, and the hope is that these results will help with otherwise intractable facial paralysis resulting from facial nerve disorders in the clinical setting. Dr. Kathryn Jones received a B.S. and certificate in Physical Therapy from the University of Wisconsin‐Madison. She attended the University of Illinois at Chicago and earned a Ph.D. in Neuroscience and was a Postdoctoral Fellow in Neuroendocrinology at the Laboratories of Neurobiology and Behaviour and Neuroendocrinology at the Rockefeller University. She came to Loyola in 1994, and is a professor in the department of Cell Biology, Neurobiology and Anatomy and the department of Otolaryngology. Jones has a joint appointment at the Edward Hines Jr. VA Hospital, where she is a research career scientist. Dr. Jones has recently been named director of the Neuroscience Institute, Loyola University Chicago Stritch School of Medicine. Dr. Jones' primary research focus is on the potential of hormones such as estrogen and testosterone to repair damage in patients with peripheral nerve and spinal cord injuries. She also is doing research in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's disease).The overall goal of the research in Dr. Jones’ laboratory is to understand the basis for successful neuronal regeneration in neurons capable of survival and full axonal regrowth following injury and to extrapolate that information to enhance survival and regeneration of neurons otherwise incapable of survival and/or axonal regrowth 28
and injury. Dr. Jones’ laboratory is currently investigating the use of steroids for the treatment of facial nerve paralysis induced by intracranial tumors. Her work has been continually funded since the 1980s by the National Institutes of Health, Veterans Administration, American Paralysis Association, Paralyzed Veterans of America and the Les Turner ALS Foundation. Her research is internationally recognized, and her studies have been published in top neuroscience journals. – Update #
Keynote Performance Annual Conference Banquet 7:45 PM, Monday, 25 May
Tony Tsendeas as
Frank the Body Snatcher Tony Tsendeas is an artistic associate of the Baltimore Shakespeare Company where he has directed the company's acclaimed productions of Shakespeare's Macbeth, Othello, Julius Caesar, and the parody The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged), as well as Kimberley Lynn's Love for Words. Roles for the company include Caliban in The Tempest, Benedick in Much Ado About Nothing, The Player in Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Paroles in All's Well That Ends Well and most recently, Sir Toby Belch in Twelfth Night. Mr. Tsendeas has also performed at a variety of theaters regionally including Roundhouse Theater, Theater J, Woolly Mammoth, Everyman Theater and Center Stage. Film and video work includes HBO's The Wire, NBC's Homicide: Life in the Streets, and appearances and voice over work for The Family Channel, The Learning Channel and Discovery. From 1992 until 2000, Mr. Tsendeas was the artistic director of Baltimore's internationally recognized Action Theater. The company was in residence at the Baltimore Theatre Project and toured Northern Europe and Great Britain with its production BeckettLand, a collection of short dramatic pieces by Samuel Beckett, set in a Ghost Carnival or Bemusement Park. Tony Tsendeas is currently a member of the theater faculty of the Baltimore School for the Arts. Tony Tsendeas presents his acclaimed one man show: Frank the Bodysnatcher. The show is based on the real life exploits of a man named Frank, who in 1812 was ostensibly hired as a custodian by the newly established University of Maryland Medical School. His real function, however, was as a Bodysnatcher or "Resurrection Man.” It was Frank's job to supply the school with "fresh subjects" for the anatomy labs and lectures. Tony Tsendeas vividly brings Frank to life in this tour‐de‐force performance. Darkly comic in tone, the show boldly recreates an offbeat slice of actual history.
Assessment of Learning Gains in Inquiry‐Based Physiology Laboratories Maureen Knabb, Loretta Rieser‐Danner & Giovanni Casotti, West Chester University Students in our non‐majors Human A & P and majors’ physiology laboratories have experienced a curricular transition from an instructor‐centered to a student‐centered, inquiry‐ based approach. To assess learning gains, we developed an assessment instrument to evaluate improvement in three areas: physiology content (goal 1), scientific inquiry skills (goal 2), and critical thinking (goal 3). In A & P, post‐course scores improved significantly compared to pre‐test scores, with 86% (post‐test) versus 46% (pre‐test) of students (n = 111) achieving a score greater than 70%. The greatest score increase occurred in content knowledge (p < 0.0001) although significant improvements were also observed in inquiry skills (p < 0.0001) and critical thinking (p < 0.01). Similar results were found in the majors course (n = 14 students) with a significant improvement in the number of students achieving greater than 70% overall (42% pre‐ vs. 79% post‐ test) score. The greatest improvement was found in inquiry skills (p < 0.01) and content knowledge (p < 0.05). These results demonstrate that students in both courses gain content and process skill knowledge. Thus, the inquiry‐based laboratory experience successfully enhances student learning of physiological principles as well as the scientific method. Supported by NSF CCLI 0509161.
Case Study Discussion in Large Lecture Anatomy and Physiology Classes Jeannette Hafey, Springfield College There is growing interest in the use of case study discussion to engage students and develop critical thinking skills in large lecture classes. An interdisciplinary team of Springfield College faculty collaborated to present students in an anatomy and physiology class with real‐life clinical scenarios that they might encounter in their interactions with class‐ and teammates, family members, and future patients in their allied health careers. With partial support from the National Center for Science and Civic Engagement, faculty members developed a set of structured case studies and assignments that unfolded over several lecture sessions to encourage student investigation and analysis. Over two years, the project grew into a quasi‐experimental study that measured students’ academic performance, confidence in science knowledge and skills, interest in science topics, engagement in civic activities, and perceptions of helpfulness of case study discussion for learning. Results were compared across two course sections, one that included trained peer leaders to facilitate discussions and one without peer leaders. Significant differences across sections and between pre‐ and post‐course questionnaires were found in several areas. This poster describes the study and its results and provides resources for the development and utilization of case studies.
A Case Study in Action: How is the Chemical Eric Case Being Taught? Jeannette Hafey, Springfield College "Chemical Eric: Dealing With the Disintegration of Central Control" was published in 2006 as a teaching case and added to the collection of cases maintained online by The National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science at the State University of New York at Buffalo. Chemical Eric has been a fairly popular case, currently being taught by more than forty teachers in at least four countries and 18 states. It describes the unfolding symptoms and treatment of a patient with a benign pituitary tumor. The case study uses this story to teach about the complexities, feedback loops, and multiple layers of control build into the human hormonal system. This case is being taught at various educational levels, ranging from high school biology classes to graduate human anatomy and physiology courses. We explore modifications that various instructors have made, and discuss the phenomenon of case teaching in light of the influence of such individualization.
Clay Modeling as a Method to Learning Human Muscles – A Community College Study Howard K. Motoike, Robyn L. O’Kane, Erez Lenchner, and Carol Haspel, LaGuardia Community College The efficacy of clay modeling compared with cat dissection for human muscle identification was examined over two semesters at LaGuardia Community College in Queens, NY. The 181 students in 10 sections in this study were randomly distributed into control (cat dissection) and experimental (clay modeling) groups, and the results of the muscle practical examination were analyzed. The clay modeling group was significantly better at identifying human muscles on human models than the cat dissection group and were as good at identifying muscles on their self‐made clay mannequins as the cat dissection group was at identifying cat muscle on their specimens. This study demonstrated that clay modeling is more effective than cat dissection for learning human muscles at the community college level.
The Cholesterol Myths: A Case Study in Perception vs. Reality Richard Pollak, Queensborough Community College/CUNY Research conclusions of the last few decades concerning diet, cholesterol and cardiovascular health have been contradictory, whereby practical applications are not based on scientific findings. Our students and many others are only cursorily aware of this controversy, though they may follow the ‘settled wisdom’ in their daily lives. The social and medical confusion on the (misleading) importance of both dietary and blood cholesterol translates into unsubstantiated and possible harmful decisions on diet and medication, and needless worry for the consumer. For instance, a recent study concluded: "At eight years of follow‐up, a fat‐reduced diet was not associated with reduced risk for breast or colon cancer, heart disease, stroke, or cardiovascular disease". Another study indicates that total fat in the diet has no relation to heart disease risk, and even indicates more cancers for the low‐fat cohort. Yet general perceptions, A&P textbooks, and official recommendations are impervious to these findings. They appeal to settled wisdom despite contradictory finding, and show an inability to respond to science. Members of the science/health community should examine these data and lead the population in a re‐evaluation of the accepted perceptions.
Combining On‐line Delivery with Problem‐Based Learning for Anatomy and Physiology Teaching Dalia Giedrimiene, Saint Joseph College On‐line delivery was combined with problem based learning (PBL) to enhance Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) teaching and the learning process. In general, PBL is an appropriate method of learning for professionals continuing their education. It allows them to learn information in a directly applicable manner and serves to enhance their analytical and critical thinking skills. The emphasis in this learner‐centered approach, in contrast to the teacher‐centered approach, is placed on “learning to learn”, so students can meet the lifelong challenge of solving the problems they encounter staying up to date in their field. Combined with on‐line delivery, the PBL was used to enhance students’ process of thinking, and contributed to meaningful asynchronous course discussions. Teaching (A&P) on‐line also offered new ways of access to different sources of information, including the world‐wide‐web. The web allowed access to published material, to other institutions and places, and also served as a student‐centered learning resource, which was an integral component for learning on‐line. On‐line teaching and learning surpasses the traditional classroom environment in its quality and content and creates a great potential to enhance traditional university teaching and learning process.
Comparative Methods for Teaching Histology to Community College Students in Courses in Human Anatomy and Physiology Scott C. Sherman, Chong K. Jue, Queensborough Community College In this study different methods of teaching histology to community college students in courses in human anatomy and physiology are discussed and critiqued. The advantages and disadvantages of these methods are evaluated in respect to different classroom environments. The different teaching methods included in this study are: 1) self‐guided learning of histology, 2) learning histology through preset microscopes, 3) lessons on histology by image projection, 4) understanding histology through digitized imaging, 5) experiencing histology through peer discussion, 6) discovering histology through problem‐based learning, 7) understanding histology by motor‐based learning, 8) experiencing histology by instructor‐guided discovery, 9) comprehending organ‐based learning, and 10) comprehending organ system‐based learning. There is no single method that serves best for all students. The outcome of these different teaching methods depends on the unique setting of each individual classroom. Each instructor may employ one or more of these different techniques to supplement their own teaching styles, enhancing the learning experience and comprehension of the students.
Concepts of Human Anatomy and Gait Interplay with Equine Anatomy and Gait Emily Allen, Gloucester County College Concepts involving gait, balance and sway motions of various anatomical structures have distinct similarities in motion during gait regardless of the species or location. When riding a horse similar human muscles and joint structures have to move in concert with the equine anatomical structures as the human skeleton must move with the horse's gaits to appear still to an observer. Equine therapeutic riding is based on this concept providing physical therapy through this rider’s movement. Education on human anatomical topics such as gait, bone, joint and muscle actions have value in unexpected locations such as equine science.
Cool Learning Supplements Are Not Useful to All Students Anthony J. Weinhaus, University of Minnesota Students use many techniques and tools/ supplements to study Anatomy; paper flashcards for example. These typically have an un‐labeled figure on one‐side and a labeled figure on the other. The hypothesis for this study is that improvements can be made on current supplements. These include: providing on‐line, innovative “digital” flashcards; incorporating pedagogy to teach the student techniques for learning; and using “real‐clinical cases” to make anatomy clinically relevant. Sets of “digital flashcards” were created in Microsoft PowerPoint and converted to .pdf. Each slide was a “flashcard” with the appearance of being interactive. All students in the course had unlimited access through our password protected course website. An evaluation was offered at on this site. Data were analyzed from undergraduate students enrolled in a one‐semester Human Anatomy lecture course. Of 423 registered students, 123 responded to the evaluation. The data disprove our simple hypothesis that creating innovative and clinically relevant supplements would increase interest and thus, lead to more use, more efficient learning, and better exam performance. These data suggest that there is a learning process required by the students in order to use these learning‐supplements. It cannot be assumed that a cool supplement will be useful to all students. For example, the “digital flashcards” seem to be more complex than conventional cards; the study of the skeletal system on a radiograph is much more complex than on a standard figure from the text; and the application of knowledge of the skeletal system to solve a clinical problem is a very high level of learning.
Design and Evaluation of a Human Anatomy and Physiology Curriculum with Understanding by Design Ellen J. Lehning, Jamestown Community College This poster will present a curriculum for a digestive system unit designed with Understanding by Design (UbD). UbD is a curricular design approach for improving student achievement. The UbD approach is synthesized from current learning theory in cognitive psychology and uses a three step, backwards design process: 1) learning is focused on understandings which are big ideas within a content discipline; 2) assessment is focused on demonstration of understanding with authentic performance assessment; and 3) learning experiences employ experiential and inductive learning strategies. Guidelines for devising and peer evaluating curricula using UbD’s backwards design process will be described in context of the digestive system unit. The unit will be implemented in a two‐semester anatomy & physiology course in spring 2009. Action research will be used to collect data and evaluate unit effectiveness. Action research is a type of applied research which involves a sequence of setting goals, designing a plan to achieve the goals, collecting data, analyzing and interpreting data, and acting on the results. The action research study population will consist of students enrolled in two anatomy and physiology lecture sections at Jamestown Community College. Thus, this research will evaluate effectiveness of the UbD backwards design process in an actual classroom setting.
Does Collaborative Group Testing Improve Performance? Kathy Starr, Western Carolina University Collaborative group exams can be an effective learning tool that allows students to enhance their knowledge by building on the strengths of their peers. Working in groups may motivate students to study materials more thoroughly so as not to disappoint other group members or jeopardize the group grade. Additionally, collaborative group exams may reduce test anxiety. First‐year physical therapy (PT) students enrolled in the human anatomy course at Western Carolina University were placed in small permanent groups (n = 4‐5) by the instructor at the beginning of the semester based on certain criteria such as undergraduate major and previous dissection experience. These groups worked together on dissections and completed group lab exams and group quizzes throughout the semester. To determine whether collaboration improved performance, PT students completed the same 15 question multiple‐choice quiz individually and as part of their permanent groups. Based on composite test scores groups performed significantly better than individuals on the quiz. Students were asked to complete a survey concerning their experiences with group testing. Survey data indicated that 89% of the students agreed or strongly agreed that they would recommend group testing in other courses.
The Effect of Learning Portfolios on Student Performance and Motivation in a Pre‐Clinical Anatomy and Physiology Course Robert J. Swatski, Harrisburg Area Community College ‐ York Campus In Summer 2008, I introduced a Learning Portfolio project in the Anatomy and Physiology I course I teach at the York Campus of Harrisburg Area Community College and began to assess its impact on student performance. This project evolved as a way to enhance student engagement in the learning process through the creation of laboratory study aids based upon their individual learning styles (VARK questionnaire, www.vark‐learn.com). During lab, I demonstrate examples of different active learning techniques and encourage students to complete those that would most improve their understanding of the concepts. Examples of study aids include drawings (pens/pencils, digital), models (clay, pipe cleaners, string), photography (with digital enhancement), plastic overlays, concept maps (hand‐drawn or with CmapTools, http://cmap.ihmc.us/conceptmap.html), clay muscle building using Mannekins®, and simple PowerPoint® animations. Students include in their portfolios a selection of study aids with written reflections on their usefulness, learning styles, exam performance, and an overall self‐assessment. In my poster presentation, I will share student feedback on the educational value of learning portfolios, quantitative grade comparisons, and examples of student work. Initial results demonstrate that this project has improved grades, builds confidence, increases motivation, and promotes a strong sense of achievement in my students.
The Efficacy of Cadaver Dissection in Students' Understanding of the Gastrointestinal System Kebret T. Kebede & Tony Scinta, Nevada State College The objective was to determine the efficacy of cadaver dissection in students' knowledge of the gastrointestinal system and to determine whether it can significantly increase their knowledge beyond that of the standard educational practices. Three classes consisting of 25 students on average were used for the study. One of the classes was randomly assigned to incorporate cadaver dissection during the study of the gastrointestinal system. Students in this class were instructed by exposing the abdominal cavity and the organs of the gastrointestinal tract including the accessory organs. They were also encouraged to manipulate and closely examine the structures in the cadaver and compare them to the images in their text book. The control groups were the other two classes. In one of the classes students were instructed using technology enhanced (PPT images) lectures and another class with a regular lecture that did not incorporate technology but standard diagrams. All students in all three classes took a written exam with limited number questions that required explanation of function, listing of organs and analyzing the relationship of the parts of the GI tract in the process of digestion and absorption, at the beginning of the study. After allowing equal time for preparation all students in all three classes took similar exam post‐dissection. Assessing the results of all three classes in the pre‐dissection exam, the results between them did not present a statistical difference. The results of the three classes’ post‐ dissection assessment reflected that the students who were instructed incorporating cadaver dissection performed significantly better than the students who were instructed using technology‐enhanced lectures and conventional lectures. Students were also asked to write an evaluation of the course describing their respective experiences. Students with the cadaver experience stated that they considered the cadaver dissection the most valuable part of the course and mentioned that it provided them a realistic perspective of the human anatomy and also significantly facilitated their understanding of its physiology. They were also enthusiastic in recommending it to all pre‐health professions students and emphasized that it should be used for all body systems. During the study of human anatomy in general and of the gastrointestinal system in particular, cadaver dissection provides students with a better understanding of the systems by giving them a realistic perspective on the organs that comprise each system. As reflected in the objective study and in the subjective evaluation of the students’ learning process cadaver dissection is a valuable tool in anatomy and physiology instruction. All statistical values and charts will follow.
Evaluation of a Peer‐Instruction Program in an Undergraduate Anatomy Laboratory Stephanie Pounder & Mary Lou Bareither, University of Illinois at Chicago A study was conducted on the benefits of peer‐instruction in the laboratory of an A & P course which enrolls 500 students with lab sections taught by graduate assistants (GA). Undergraduate students, who had previously completed this course and were enrolled in a cadaver dissection course, were assigned as peer‐instructors to assist the GA. A survey evaluating the peer‐instructional program was administered to the students, undergraduate peer‐instructors and GAs. Grades were compared, using an independent t‐test, to the year prior to implementation of the peer‐instruction program.
Although there was no significant difference in the course grades (p=0.43), students responded that the peer‐instructors were academically beneficial. Peer instructors reported improvement in: understanding course concepts, leadership, communication, confidence and teamwork. Graduate assistants were highly supportive of the peer‐instructors and felt they benefited teaching and learning in the lab. Student enrolled in the cadaver dissection class were administered a pre and post‐exam on anatomical concepts. Students who were also participating as peer‐instructors scored significantly higher (p=.003) than students in the dissection class who were not peer‐instructors. These outcomes suggest that a peer‐ instructional program may a valuable educational method to enhance the undergraduate learning environment and provide a valuable learning experience to the peer‐instructors.
Expression of TRPM7 mRNA in Cultured Cells Karyn M. Turla & K. L. Miller, Friends University TRPM7 (transient receptor protein melastatin 7) is a Mg++ channel that is thought to be responsible for the maintenance of cellular magnesium homeostasis. This channel became intensely studied when it was discovered to play a role in the neuronal cell death response that occurs following stresses such as hypoxia. This channel has been implicated in the function of the kidneys, nervous system, heart and immune systems and its function is also implicated in several disease states such as pulmonary hypertension and WPALS (Western Pacific Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). The study presented here was conducted to develop a Reverse Transcription Polymerase Chain Reaction technique to detect the expression of TRPM7 mRNA in cultured mouse collecting duct cells (M1 cells) and human liver HEP G‐2 cells. Total RNA was extracted from the cultured cells, cDNA was synthesized from mRNA using oligo dT primers and the TRPM7 sequences were amplified by PCR using sequence specific primers. Verification of TRPM7 PCR products was established by restriction digestion and identification of predicted band lengths. This study is the first step in a series of experiments that are planned to study the expression of TRPM7 in cultured cells originating from various tissues.
Fasting Effects on Male Rat Digestive Tissue Oxytocin Robert P. Parks, Pace University / St. John's University Adult male rat oxytocin (OT) concentrations were determined by radioimmunoassay in the following nerve and organs: vagus; esophagus; pyloric antrum; duodenum; jejunum; ileum; cecum; pancreas; liver; and colon. Tissue samples were collected from randomly assigned rats to the following groups: fasted with food access (30 min.); cephalic phase response (CPR) fasted with food exposure (30 min.); (adlib) feed and water and control fasted animals. All fasting intervals were 48 hours. Elevated OT concentrations were observed in the vagus and all of the digestive targets of the fasted food access group. Eighty percent of the CPR targets and 60% of the adlib targets had elevated OT concentrations when compared to the fasting control animals (statistics in progress). These data support previous observations of OT presence in digestive and accessory digestive organs. The elevated OT in the digestive targets of the fasted with food access and CPR groups suggests target OT concentrations increases during the cephalic phase of digestion and while eating. Elevated OT in the organs of the adlib vs. the fasted animals may imply a different OT mechanism for the adlib rats.
HAPS Committee Updates These posters present information on and updates of the HAPS Committees' activities, investigations and results since the 2008 Annual Conference. HAPS standing committees include the Animal Use, Regional Conference, Annual Conference, HAPS‐Ed, Cadaver Use, HAPS Institute, Curriculum and Instruction, Membership, Safety, Partner Associations, Public Relationship, Testing, and Web & Technology Committees. Learn what committees are doing and which committees are looking for new members. Some committees have chosen to present individual posters.
HAPS Committee Update: Animal Use Committee Update Animal Use Committee (Don Kelly, Chair) This poster presents updates and modifications of the Committee's Incidence Response Plan and reports on the Committee's investigations and results over the past year since the last Annual Conference. Poster presentations have become a very effect method of dissemination of Committee information and garnering valuable responses from the membership.
HAPS Committee Update: The HAPS Learning Outcomes Project Curriculum & Instruction Committee (Carol Veil, Chair) The purpose of the HAPS Learning Outcomes Project was to create a set of goals and learning outcomes for a two‐ semester course sequence in human anatomy and physiology intended to prepare students for a variety of clinical and academic programs. The documents produced in this project can be used as a benchmark for instructors who are currently teaching anatomy and physiology courses and as a guide for those who are developing new courses. More than thirty individuals have worked for the past three years on this project, which will be completed in late spring or early summer of 2009. This poster will highlight the work of the HAPS Curriculum and Instruction committee, with the intent of making HAPS members aware of this valuable resource that will be available to them on the HAPS website.
HAPS Committee Update: The New Public Affairs Committee – Join Now! Public Affairs Committee (David Evans, Chair) The goal of the Public Affairs Committee is to raise public awareness of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society and to open 2‐way communications between HAPS and other public organizations. We develop and send out publicity for Annual and Regional Conferences, HAPS‐I, and other important events. It is part of our task to keep an eye on legal developments and public trends that might impact members. We also maintain a Public Affairs page linked to the HAPS Homepage that every week provides news about individual members, science advancements, technological innovations, and the art of teaching. We stay busy all year long! If you want to be a part of this dynamic new committee, contact David Evans (firstname.lastname@example.org).
HAPS Committee Update: Spotlight on Safety Safety Committee (Rema Suniga, Chair) During the 2000 HAPS Annual Conference at Charlotte, interested HAPS members organized a Safety Committee to address issues of student and instructor welfare in the human anatomy & physiology laboratory. The first goal of the Safety Committee was to create the Safety Guidelines (released in 2005) as the standard for promoting safe practices in teaching the human A&P laboratory. The Safety Committee continues to update and expand the Guidelines, promote safety awareness, and serve as the authority on issues of safety for the HAPS membership. In support of these aims, the Safety Committee’s poster highlights several topics covered in the Guidelines and presents data gathered from a survey on safety of the HAPS membership at the 2008 Annual Meeting in New Orleans. The Safety Committee is currently working on assembling case studies of safety issues in the A&P laboratory and invites the HAPS membership to share their personal incidents of A&P safety during the scheduled committee meeting at the 2009 Annual Conference in Baltimore.
Incorporating Case Studies into a Major’s Physiology Course to Encourage Integrative Thinking Maureen Knabb, West Chester University To investigate student’s ability to integrate and apply physiological concepts, case studies were incorporated into an upper level physiology course. Six instructor‐designed cases represented recent newspaper reports (n=3) or invented stories (n=3) and were presented either in‐class (n=3) or online via a Blackboard discussion board (n=3). For the first case, the instructor helped the students generate 3 relevant questions that were designed to achieve integrative thinking. Assessment was based on written group responses to the student‐generated questions, instructor‐generated multiple choice exam questions, and student perceptions of their learning. There was no significant difference between performances on multiple choice exam questions evaluating student learning from lecture content versus case analysis. The end‐of‐semester survey indicated that all students enjoyed using case studies and an online format was slightly preferred over in‐class (53%). Some students favored the news‐based cases (33%) compared to invented cases and the majority (80%) preferred constructing their own questions. Most students (83%) agreed that case studies extended their understanding of course content and encouraged inter‐system as well as interdisciplinary thinking. These results indicate that case studies can be incorporated successfully to develop integrative thinking in physiology and students enjoy the challenge of identifying and answering their own questions.
Information Overload – How to Effectively Use Media in the Lab Kim Kerr & Nancy Kincaid, Troy University, Montgomery Campus Several computer programs are important to our A&P classes. Most are packaged with our books without additional charge, but also available in our own lab. Our newest, PAL2, is extremely user‐friendly and has students asking for additional homework. PhysioEx works best as instructor led activities, while Biopac is most effective in small groups. We are converting our Interactive Physiology and PAL2 homework to automatically graded exercises.
iPhone Support for Anatomy/Physiology Instruction Lifang Tien & Roger Boston, Houston Community College The goal of this study is to explore the viability of a new teaching and learning environment that will take advantage of mobile phone access to internet instructional materials. We had pilot iPhone access to Anatomy and Physiology course, and determine through comparative studies the value added by providing portable access to class materials and interactions. The viability of mobile learning was evaluated through three areas of the learning process: the interest level of learning; the collaborating level of learning; and in‐depth understanding of the concepts. A survey designed for analysis of these areas have been compared between the experience group (mobile phone accessible) and control group (PC accessible only). Our preliminary data show: 1) students connecting time has significantly increased (20% of our students’ connecting time has doubled; 80% of our students’ connecting time increased at least 30‐70%); 2) 100% of the students believed iPhone has increased their connection both socially and academically; and 3) 95% of students believed iPhone has helped them to understand the class material better. This study has showed the mobile computing did improve our students learning outcomes. This study is supported by Houston Community College chancellor’s innovation fund.
A Pedagogical Strategy for Teaching Human Biology to Non‐Science Majors Laurie J. Bonneau, Trinity College Non‐majors often have difficulty with undergraduate science courses; they face them with trepidation and have difficulty figuring out what and how to study. That these issues apply to human biology, a subject in which students have a natural interest, signals a mismatch between student efforts and teacher expectations. Over several years of teaching human biology to students in the arts and humanities, I have adopted the approach of providing students with banks of essay questions from which exam questions will be taken. Such questions are comprehensive and detailed, and encompass the entire scope of course material. Statistical comparison of my Human Biology course using this approach vs. more traditional methods reveals a significant improvement in student performance as measured through their mastery of the material and their course grades. Under this model, students go through a period of adjustment early in the semester (during which their grades are lower), followed by significant improvements thereafter. Combined with positive course evaluations, these findings suggest that providing a pool of potential essay exam questions ahead of time improves learning and grades; it also reduces test anxiety and helps students to focus their studies on the most significant aspects of the subject.
Problem Solving is an Essential Part of Teaching Anatomy and Physiology Dalia Giedrimiene, Saint Joseph College In general, it is clear that critical thinking is essential to understand science and to apply it in practical settings appropriately. Biology education, including Anatomy and Physiology (A&P) teaching, has been criticized for emphasizing mindless memorization over analytical and creative science. A good starting point in the development of critical thinking skills is a use of practical examples or problem‐based cases meaningful to the student. Adding problem‐based learning (PBL) component to A&P studies may significantly enhance the active learning process and to improve critical thinking skills. Learning from case‐based problems requires them to synthesize the new material with previous knowledge, allowing the students to update and expand their existing skills. A problem‐based approach facilitates the development of collaborative skills by the student without stifling their individuality. Relating the lecture material with applicable cases or problems, the subject of A&P becomes much more attractive to all students. Based on own experiences, most students showed more willingness to undertake additional homework in order to solve problem related cases. Hopefully, PBL enhancement of A&P studies will lead to a new design of laboratory activities and engage the learner in more classroom discussions.
Promoting Student Learning with Unlimited Exam Attempts and Online Testing Barbara Krumhardt, Iowa State University Anatomy and physiology are challenging subjects for many of our students. To increase student success in these classes and promote deeper learning, unlimited attempts on exams taken via the Blackboard online learning system were allowed over each testing period of four days. All exams were taken in a proctored testing facility on campus with 4 hours of study (or wait) time required between attempts. To make this promote learning, exams were composed of 4 or more questions covering each learning objective. With about 50 learning objectives per exam, this meant developing a large test bank. With each attempt, a student would see new randomly‐selected questions covering learning objectives. Additionally, the answers for questions were displayed in random order, so students always saw a new exam with each attempt. Students learned to study all learning objectives, not just the questions seen on prior attempts. Seventy‐three percent of
the students responding to an online survey believed that the unlimited attempts promoted their learning. In general, students increased their scores considerably during each testing period.
Reactions to Cadaver Dissection in a Physical Therapy Anatomy Course Kathy Starr, Western Carolina University At Western Carolina University physical therapy (PT) students learn the basics of anatomy by doing cadaver dissections. For the past six years PT students have been involved in a number of activities to reduce their anxieties and carefully prepare them for the gross anatomy laboratory. These activities include touring the anatomy lab prior to dissection, learning about the body donor program, reading a letter written by a first‐year medical student about her dissection experience, class discussions and videotaped interviews with PT students who have completed the anatomy course. In surveys competed by students approximately one month after beginning dissection, a majority of students found the preparatory activities were beneficial. Of those surveyed (n = 172), 90.1% felt moderately to extremely prepared to begin dissection even though 90% of the students had never worked with cadavers. In addition, students were asked to describe their anticipation before beginning dissection, their reactions to their first encounter with cadavers, the coping mechanisms they used for dealing with dissection, and some of the thoughts provoked by working with cadavers. These data will be summarized in this poster presentation.
Student‐Produced Anatomic Models in Anatomy and Physiology Courses Marshall S. Griffin & Joyce R. Kronberg, West Virginia University at Parkersburg Anatomic models are expensive to purchase but can convey more information than even the best quality photographs or two‐dimensional drawings. The authors have found that students working in small groups can produce high quality, three‐dimensional models that are often more detailed than purchased materials. The poster will describe how the authors assigned and evaluated the modeling project in a Nursing/Health Science Anatomy and Physiology course. Some example photographs of actual student produced models will be included. The instructors have found that students who construct models tend to better understand the modeled structure. Since quality student‐produced models can last for years, they can serve as a resource for future Anatomy and Physiology students as well as students in other Biology courses.
Students Perform Better on Laboratory Assessments in Human Anatomy with the Opportunity to Attend an Additional Unstructured Review Lab Anthony J. Weinhaus, University of Minnesota This study was undertaken to examine the impact of unstructured review time – in addition to the structured lab time ‐ on performance in the lab practical exam. Besides simply more time to study, there are many other subtle benefits of attending an unstructured review in the lab. These play a critical role in learning and include: peer teaching, problem‐ solving, critical self‐assessment, development of psycho‐motor skills, and the promotion of active learning. The lab course meets once per week for 2 hours. The lab consists of tutored (formal instruction) investigation of human cadavers. This lab is also available an additional 4 hours per week as an informal review lab. Analysis of the performance on the first practical exam (data not yet available for the second and third exam) show that students who attend review lab performed 12.0% better on total score than those who did not (P<0.0001). The breaks down as: 9.2% better on multiple‐choice (P<0.001), 22.8% better on short answer (P<0.0001), and 37.0% better on second‐order questions (P=0.0024). These data show that students perform better when they attend a non‐structured, informal laboratory review. Besides the opportunity to commit more time to studying anatomy, it seems likely that there are many subtle benefits of attending this type of review lab that play an important role in learning.
Suture 101: Closing the Gap between Basic Anatomical Knowledge and Clinical Application in the A&P Laboratory Mark Jaffe, Nova Southeastern University Traditionally, clinical skills are taught in the graduate medical setting. At the undergraduate level they are occasionally introduced in premedical society workshops. Teaching undergraduate students basic suturing in the anatomy and physiology laboratory setting creates a unique opportunity for the students to reinforce their basic understanding of body tissue organization and to apply their understanding clinically as they perform psychomotor skills. The equipment and supplies are relatively inexpensive and easily obtainable. Suturing can be taught concurrently with or after the Integumentary system lab session. Although pigs’ feet are commonly used for this wet‐lab, most dissection specimens
already utilized can be substituted. Furthermore, this concept has great versatility and can be modified to meet the needs of any current A&P laboratory curriculum.
What’s better? Integrated Anatomy and Physiology, or Anatomy and Physiology Taught as Separate Disciplines? Hannah Anchordoquy, Regis University Anatomy and physiology content is typically taught as either a 2 semester integrated A&P series, or as separate disciplines in two consecutive semesters. Which delivery method provides the most effective learning resource for students? When Regis University switched from teaching A&P as an integrated 2‐semester series to teaching anatomy and physiology separately, I assessed student learning outcomes with each content delivery method to compare them. Students completing a 2 semester integrated A&P series received a cumulative multiple choice exam. Questions were drawn at random from a published testbank associated with Anatomy and Physiology, 7th edition, Marieb and Hoehn. The mean score on the exam for the integrated A&P students was 53%. The following spring, after the shift to separate Anatomy and Physiology courses (Anatomy in the fall, Physiology in the spring, both still taught at the 200 level by the same instructor), students received the same cumulative multiple choice exam. Scores for this student cohort appeared to increase, almost to the level of statistical significance (mean = 57%, p = 0.09). Several problems plagued the first offering of separated Anatomy and Physiology, so I gave the same exam the following year, to the students taking the separated Anatomy and Physiology series the second year it was offered at Regis. With this student cohort, scores on the same cumulative multiple choice exam improved even further. Students repeating the courses were excluded from this analysis, as were students who did not complete both semesters. These results indicate that student outcomes improve when Anatomy and Physiology content is taught separately. Multiple factors may contribute to the observed improvement, including increased reiteration of material, improved ability to focus on major anatomical or physiological themes, or reduced “gear shifting” as students switch from anatomical to physiological content and back in an integrated A&P course.

How to Create Your Custom Lab Manual Northwest Missouri State University
Are you tired of trying to adapt a large commercial lab manual to your specific lab objectives? Would you like to be free from the time and expense of making handouts for each of your labs? Have you always wondered what was actually involved in publishing your own lab manual? This workshop will present the pros and cons involved with creating a custom lab manual and a step‐by‐step description of the process from initial ideas through publication of finished product. There will be plenty of time to answer all your questions. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 102 ACT UP! Activities for Moderately‐Sized Lecture Classes Room D‐201 Jacqueline D Van Hoomissen University of Portland How can I get the students in my moderately‐sized lecture class (N=60) to participate during the lecture so that I can assess their understanding of the core concepts without having to sacrifice content? The answer: get them to ACT UP! ACT UP stands for Activities Completed Today to assess your Understanding and application of the material. The purposes of the ACT UP are to provide a framework within lecture that serves as the mechanism by which a professor can 1)involve students in lecture, 2)assess each student's understanding, 3)minimize the amount of busy work done outside of class, and 4)emphasize important concepts. Workshop 103 Room E‐215 Ruth Heisler Nora Hebert
Using PAL 2.0 as an Assessment Tool in the Laboratory University of Colorado‐Boulder Red Rocks Community College
Practice Anatomy Lab 2.0 (PAL) is an interactive software package that allows students to have unlimited access to laboratory materials. Students have access to quizzes and lab practicals through each of the 5 modules (cadaver, model, histology, cat & pig). Instructors have access to additional quizzes and lab practicals that assess student learning. We will discuss different ways these assessment tools can be used in the laboratory. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 104 Integrating Biomedical Topics for Teaching A&P Using All‐In‐One Text/Manual: Copyrights & Patent Information Room E‐205 Repeats as Workshop 505 Lakshmi Atchison, Ph.D. Chestnut Hill College Teaching of anatomy & physiology starts with cell structure and function. This information lays the foundation for A&P as well as for other biological subjects such as general biology, cell biology, histology, pathology, hematology, genetics, 43
endocrinology, molecular biology and other biomedical subjects. Cell biology lays a foundation that is built upon by educators who teach A&P to generate a continuum from single cell biology, to tissues, to organ systems. Abnormalities in cell function can impact cell physiology leading to disease states that influence A&P. Understanding normal cell biology, followed by aberrations that result in oncogenesis leading to changes in A&P, can provide a powerful teaching approach that links basic cell biology to whole organism A&P. Therefore, an “all‐in one” text/manual was published to link basic cell biology to other sub disciplines of biology, cancer biology, and A&P. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 105 How Can You Teach Anatomy Online? Room E‐209 Repeats as Workshop 414 Betsy Brantley Lansing Community College Can students learn anatomy online? How can their comprehension be assessed? LCC has piloted an online anatomy lab utilizing virtual cadaver software and additional internet resources. How do those students taking the online lab perform compared to the face‐to‐face students? The online lab course design and assessment tools will be presented, but we'll also be seeking participant input. How would you test? What could make the course more attractive to transfer institutions? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 106 Charting a New Course: Developing Interactive Pedagogical Manipulatives Room D‐200 Repeats as Workshop 809 Jennifer Bridges, Ph.D. Saginaw Valley State University Carla Lents, M.S. Denoyer‐Geppert Science Company Denoyer‐Geppert Science Company goes beyond the mere idea of making anatomical models. Rather, it develops interactive pedagogical manipulatives and is seeking YOUR input into this process! Attendees are invited to share “wish lists” and teaching insights important to this process in a directed interactive discussion. HAPS members were surveyed during winter 2009 on their use of anatomical models in the classroom. Survey results will be presented and were based on questions such as: What changes would make models effective and relevant? What A&P areas are lacking models? And how can models be integrated into future teaching methods/technology? _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 107 “Groovin' In the Hippocampus": Music and Other Art Forms Enhancing Classroom Instruction Room E‐211 Repeats as Workshop 311 Lisa Bromfield Winchester Medical Center Many struggling students effortlessly remember song lyrics. This workshop introduces participants to the CD, “Groovin’ in the Hippocampus: Songs to Learn Anatomy & Physiology By,” a tool for facilitating A&P instruction. The workshop discusses the positive effects of music on learning and presents techniques using the CD and other art forms to encourage participatory learning. The workshop also considers the skills of “good students” that might be engendered in all students through creativity. Lisa Jones Bromfield, the presenter, writer and singer, is an RN, has taught special education, and has been a professional musician for 20 years. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Bloodless (Almost) Diagnostic Blood Labs Workshop 108 Room D‐109 Repeats as Workshop 312 Pat Clark Indiana University ‐ Purdue University at Indianapolis Innovations in my Human Physiology blood laboratories have resulted in reduced exposure risks and hazardous waste production while at the same time increasing analytical challenges for my students. Students perform human blood counts using photographs of hemocytometers. Students analyze prepared hematocrits of sheep’s blood and use artificial colors for estimation of hemoglobin content in a Tallquist Test. Because these tests are prepared ahead of time, the instructor can determine the outcome of each test and has the flexibility to combine a variety of test results for student analysis of counts, Hct, Hb, MCV, MCH, and MCHC. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 109 Introducing the New BIOPAC MP45‐ A Budget Beating Physiology Lab Solution for Community Colleges Room E‐207 Repeats as Workshop 810 Jason Cole BIOPAC Systems, Inc. The New handheld MP45 is the latest addition to the Biopac Student Lab family. The powerful two‐channel system works with BIOPAC’s extensive curriculum library and broad range of transducers. The MP45 connects to the computer via USB to receive power and transmit data. Like all BSL products, the system is intuitive and extremely robust. There are no knobs, 44
dials, or switches to confuse students, just a USB cord and two ports to connect transducers and electrodes. Connect the USB cord, launch a BSL Lesson, and start recording data. Attend the workshop and be amazed by the power, flexibility and budget beating price. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 110 Respiratory Chemoreflexes – The Role of Central and Peripheral Chemoreceptors in the Control of Breathing Room E‐213 Repeats as Workshop 805 Trevor A. Day, Ph. D Mount Royal College The respiratory control system in the brainstem receives many inputs which modulate breathing, including inputs from central and peripheral respiratory chemoreceptors. Huge advances have been made in our understanding of the mechanisms that mediate respiratory chemoreflexes in response to acute and long term changes in blood oxygen, carbon dioxide and pH. In this workshop, we will explore the classical discoveries and recent advances in the field, and apply these to a number of clinical conditions like central sleep apnea and congenital central hypoventilation syndrome (Ondine’s Curse). _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 111 Use of InterActive Extra‐classroom Media in the Instruction of Anatomy & Physiology Room E‐201 Repeats as Workshop 802 Will Kleinelp Middlesex County College The laboratory experience often ends when the student leaves the lab, since they do not have laboratory materials outside this classroom. The use of interActive extra‐classroom media allows the student to actively review laboratory materials on their own via any computer. The use of interActive software has greatly improved student success and retention rates. The software focuses on the skeletal, muscular and Nervous systems. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 112 Innovative Interactive Anatomy and Physiology Lab Manual Room E‐206 Repeats as Workshop 313 Don Shult & Paul Garcia Houston Community College We have completed and expanded an interactive online laboratory manual for anatomy and physiology courses. It includes stated objectives and quizzes for each module and sub‐module with numerous interactive activities and animations for students' use. The manual covers all topics found in a two semester course with separate sections covering a variety of disorders typical for each system. Student quizzes can be downloaded into a gradebook for the instructor's use. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ VHD Lesson Development Workshop 113 Room E‐208 Repeats as Workshop 512 Sandy Taylor Delaware Technical & Community College Lesson building with the VHD is a hands‐on sessions to encourage the development and implementation of classroom lessons using the Visible Human Dissector. Instructor generated Visible Human Dissector lessons will be presented and available to participants. Attendees will also have the opportunity to develop their own lessons using Dreamweaver.

Room E‐215 Valerie Dean O'Loughlin Indiana University Bloomington Elizabeth Pennefather‐O'Brien, Medicine Hat College The human skull can reveal much about a person, even when the person is long dead and bones are all that is left. In this hands‐on session, Valerie O’Loughlin and Elizabeth Pennefather‐O'Brien will discuss how the skull can provide clues about a person’s age at death, their sex, and perhaps their health. We will explore the common variations and pathologies evident in the skull, and how to tell the difference between a variation and pathology. We also will discuss how some diseases and trauma may be evident in the skull as well. Participants will have the opportunity to work in groups and examine human skulls for these clues. By the end of this session, participants will learn several methods for determining age at death and the sex of the human skull, and they will receive a brief bibliography of sources should they wish to learn more about this subject matter

Cane, Ph.D. Life University‐ Basic Sciences Division The nervous system, in general, can be a difficult area to get across to the student. Dealing with unseen microscopic wires in major electrical cables running through the body centrally, in body cavities or peripherally can be a daunting task. When one moves to the specifics of the Autonomic Nervous System, this may require considerable effort by student and instructor. By utilizing an historical perspective, a rather simply demonstrated analogy‐comparison to buildings with elevators, along with models and human dissection, the students should benefit with a better knowledge and understanding of the complexities of the visceral motor (and sensory) system.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 208 A Practical Introduction to Problem Based Learning E‐209 Repeats as Workshop 609 Robert B. Tallitsch, Ph.D. Augustana College This talk will help participants examine how they currently teach their classes, and how faculty and students must work to accomplish those goals. Participants will be introduced to the concept of Problem Based Learning (PBL) and how it can be used in small, large, major, and non‐major courses. Good utilization of PBL is a long and time intensive undertaking. However, the advantages of active learning more than outweigh the disadvantages, and Dr. Tallitsch will discuss the results he has seen in his Human Anatomy, Neuroanatomy and Kinesiology courses. Participants will receive a series of handouts that define PBL, including sample problems and provide additional resources. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 209 A Hands‐on Approach to Teaching the Sliding Filament Theory Room D‐207 Repeats as Workshop 605 Mark Bigelow, LMT Denoyer‐Geppert Science Company Gain a new perspective on the sliding filament theory of muscular contraction with Denoyer‐Geppert's new, patented Giant Sarcomere model. Many students will never truly understand this process without a visual aid. Using this multi‐purpose model you can show the relationship of tonicity to strength or weakness, the cause and development of contraction knots, the dramatic effects of repetitive movement on the titin filaments, and what happens to the surrounding fascia when sarcomeres shorten. Includes hands‐on exchanges and discussion of the beneficial mechanical effects of massage and various corrective therapies used for common muscular maladies. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 210 Human Body and Pathology through Art Room E‐213 Repeats as Workshop 610 Linda Moussakova St‐Laurent College From Rembrandt to Damien Hirst, anatomy has been source of inspiration for artists, whose works have often shed light not only on the human body but also on diseases such as tuberculosis, scoliosis and migraines. This lecture will explore the scientific marvels of the human body through the eyes of artists from the sixteen century to the present day. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 211 Case Studies and Course Design Room E‐207 Repeats as Workshop 607 Mary Gahbauer Otterbein College Case studies are an attractive way of bringing the real world into your classroom, and working through them can move students toward active and independent learning. It is not difficult to find published stories with relevant questions illustrating features of A and P, but incorporating them effectively in courses needs careful planning. The proportion of the course content/principles delivered through case studies, the level of interactivity of the studies, the type of reporting option offered, and the implications of the grading scheme all impact the specific learning goals achieved. This workshop models customizing case studies to fit classes and courses. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 212 Wonderful Wiki Workshop ‐ How to Easily Create and Share A&P Teaching Resources Room E‐206 Repeats as Workshop 608 William Karkow, MD University of Dubuque Thomas M.

Workshop 301 Exploring Educational Leadership: For A & P Faculty Who Seek Excellence Room E‐209 Mark Terrell & Mathew Bateman Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine Leadership is influence. This workshop presents the principles of educational leadership directed to three academic levels that A & P faculty face: our students, our peers / administrators, and our specialty field. Participants will explore leadership concepts of self‐reflection, integrity, and change as mechanisms to successfully confront issues encountered at all three academic levels. Leadership concepts that effectuate student learning (facilitating small group activities, confronting difficult / problematic learners), performance in meetings with committees, peers, and chairs/deans (delegation, supervision, negotiation, and the peer review process), and the advancement of our field (scholarship in teaching and learning ‐ SoTL) will be explored. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 302 Is Collaboration Useful in a Content Heavy A&P Course? Room E‐205 Patricia R. Daron & Cindy Miller Northern Virginia Community College In a unique partnership with Virginia Tech, NOVA's Extended Learning Institute offered faculty a graduate‐level professional development course on facilitating collaboration in online courses. This session discusses how 2 anatomy and physiology faculty members used this experience to enhance their online courses. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 303 Using ADAM Dissection in the A&P Laboratory Room E‐215 Wendy Rappazzo & Scott Schaeffer, Harford Community College This session will provide an overview of how ADAM virtual dissection has replaced cat dissection in our BIO 203/204 A&P classes. We use the ADAM program in conjunction with models in our labs. We have created ADAM dissection packets which give the students guided dissection with review questions. These packets are graded. We will discuss how we use the program and share our ADAM packet. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 304 A&P and Student Learning Styles: the VARK method Room E‐213 Repeats as Workshop 509 Max Weber Central Carolina Technical College Many students think that reading the textbook the night before the test is the only way to study. What if reading is NOT your learning style? What then? Complain that the subject is "just too hard"? Maybe it's not the material, maybe it's your students. How would you like your students to learn the material in a more effective and, yes, easier way? VARK deals with different ways students learn: Visual; Auditory; Read/write; Kinesthetic. This workshop will explain the VARK concept and demonstrate techniques that an instructor can use to help students play to their strengths when they study A&P. Very few students know how they learn new material. For many of them, the VARK learning styles are brand new. Once students understand how they study, they will be more successful in your class. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 305 Point and Click: Use Free Online Resources to Update and Engage Room E‐201 Repeats as Workshop 506 Amy Feuerstein The American Physiological Society Fire up your lectures, update lesson content, and engage students with multimedia and hot research news…all for free.

In this interactive workshop, participants will learn to use The Archive (www.apsarchive.org) to find material to enhance their lessons. Attendees will work with a sample lesson on the physiology of exercise to see how online resources can be accessed and used to transform a lesson from didactic presentation to student‐centered learning. Each participant will receive a packet of resources from The Archive that is grouped by topic to help them get started in enriching their existing lesson plans. 49
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 306 Back to Basics: Using the "ABC's" for Learning in Science Courses Room E‐211 Repeats as Workshop 510 Laurie Montgomery Community College of Baltimore County Many topics in science are difficult for students to grasp or master. This workshop will help an instructor to define their own "ABC's" (Examples: Anatomy/Biology/Chemistry OR Analogies/Bonus/Cable TV) in order to help students understand various concepts and make connections between course content. This workshop will have some hands‐on demonstrations and an idea‐sharing/brain‐storming session from participants. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 307 A Hybrid Hands‐on Histology Lab Activity for A&P Repeats as Workshop 710 Room E‐208 John Robertson Westminster College While histology is a central component of A&P courses, the study of tissues is often limited to identification and structure recognition using prepared microscope slides and images. To provide a more integrative histology experience, this workshop will describe an engaging “hybrid” lab activity that involves students in the process of tissue preparation and study. Some aspects of preparation (e.g., dissection, fixation, staining) are done by students; other processing (dehydration, embedding, sectioning) is done by a commercial histology service. Examples of assignments built around the activity will be presented and pertinent issues, including time considerations and cost, will be discussed. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 308 Utilization of Clinical Vignettes to Promote Critical Thinking in Physiology Room D‐201 Repeats as Workshop 711 Charles L.

Workshop 401 Collaborative A&P Inquiry: Group Work Across the Miles Room D‐200 Louis Kutcher, Karen King & Edward Bradel, University of Cincinnati‐Raymond Walters College R. Christopher Harvey Brevard Community College‐Palm Bay Campus Physiological processes are greatly influenced by environmental factors. During this workshop you will learn how to engage students in a unique collaborative learning experience that explores these differences in physiological response. Attendees will work in groups to identify a physiological problem influenced by geographic location and examine how groups of students taking similar courses at different institutions could collaborate to solve the problem. We will discuss the multifaceted learning outcomes that result from this type of collaboration including group learning, increased use of technology, and increased content area knowledge. Successes and difficulties encountered in a pilot project will be discussed. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 402 Get 'em Moving! Multiple Methods for Teaching Muscle A&P Room E‐202 Edgewood College Kelley Grorud In this workshop, I will present techniques I use for teaching skeletal muscle anatomy and physiology without the need for lecture. The techniques include: using everyday items to construct muscle models, using a sequencing game for learning the steps of muscle contraction, a case study in muscle physiology, and various writing activities. I will also present preliminary quantitative and qualitative data (collected over two years in a large classroom setting) on how well students in my courses learn using these techniques. Participants will have a chance to engage in many of these activities. Handouts will be provided. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 403 Histology: Disjointed Facts or Unifying Principles? Room D‐202 Nina Zanetti Siena College Students often find Histology daunting because of the many seemingly unrelated facts and the challenge of interpreting microscopic images. We will explore the use of unifying principles (“models”) that can help students recognize patterns in histological “facts”, build frameworks for organizing content, use microscopic images to reinforce understanding, and make predictions about new information. Instructors can use this predictive feature to reinforce physiological concepts, to help students with microscopy skills, and to reinforce structure‐function correlations. Workshop participants will use a discovery approach to identify the models, apply them to course content, and explore approaches for presenting them to students.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 404 The Evolution of Hybrid Courses and Their Relationship to More Interactive Classroom Learning Activities Room D‐109 Murray Jensen University of Minnesota Carl Shuster Madison Area Technical College Historically lecture has been the primary means of information delivery in the A & P classroom. The instructor talked while students sat quietly and took notes, with maybe a few student questions thrown in for clarification. With help from computers and the Internet, more and more information delivery can now be done at a distance, and the classroom can become a place for student‐student and student‐teacher interaction. This workshop will examine a few internet‐based learning modules, review active learning strategies, e.g., cooperative quizzes, and introduce new learning methods, e.g., student produced video projects. Time for discussion will be provided. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 405 The Evolution of the Biology Learning Center (BLC): A Collaborative Process to Create a Center That Serves the Needs of Motivated Anatomy and Physiology Faculty, Tutors and Students. Room E‐207 Repeats as Workshop 508 Bartlett Hall, Susan Allen & Juan Gutierrez , Lone Star College‐‐North Harris This presentation chronicles the long process leading up to the creation of the Biology Learning Center, and the current qualitative and quantitative successes of this center. Mindful biology faculty and staff at LSC—North Harris first recognized a need for such a center to serve motivated anatomy and physiology students in need of a place to study, ask questions, and receive tutoring outside of class. Faculty obtained funding, and through collaboration with the faculty and staff in the Learning Center, the BLC was created. We have documented staggering differences in the performance of students who choose to utilize this service. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 406 Human Anatomy & Physiology Online Room E‐201 Repeats as Workshop 511 Stephen Sullivan Bucks County Community College This workshop will offer you access to a fully‐online version of Human Anatomy & Physiology including virtual dissection, physiology lab simulations, clinical simulations, podcasts, lecture captures, and other web‐based and web 2.0 applications that engage 21st century students in 21st century ways. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 407 The Effective Use of Limericks to Engage Student Interest and Promote Learning of Anatomy & Physiology Room E‐209 Repeats as Workshop 803 Jackie Carnegie, PhD, M.Ed., University of Ottawa Anatomy and physiology (ANP) courses are filled with new terminology and concepts. This workshop will explore the effective use of limericks to promote memory and encourage deeper thinking about new course content. It will begin with sample limericks prepared by 300 undergraduate health science students. Students were asked to not only develop ANP‐ associated limericks but also anonymously (authors and evaluators) evaluate the educational quality of limericks prepared by their peers. The learning value associated with having students justify assessments of limericks for accuracy, relevance and quality will be explored. Participants will develop their own limericks to bring back to the classroom. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 408 Utilizing digital assessment tools in the laboratory (computer lab) Room E‐208 Repeats as Workshop 801 Michael Kopenits Amarillo College There are so many alternative ways to assess your students utilizing digital multimedia.

Participants will learn how to develop panels, embed pictures and video files, plus label and submit figures for assessment. The polling feature of DyKnow provides immediate feedback, ascertaining understanding, while shifting control of the screen to the student increases participation. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 410 How to Write Letters of Recommendation Room E‐211 Repeats as Workshop 708 Paul A. Gardner Snow College Letters of recommendation quickly puzzled me when I began teaching in 1989. I called my former mentor, Dr. Kent Van De Graaff, and sought his advice. He gave me the basics. Since then I have written literally thousands of letters. I have had feedback from students, faculty, and members of admissions committees. I think I might finally have learned how to write meaningful letters, which help students and admission committees alike. This workshop will focus on what committees look for, how to best serve the student and the committee, and how to lighten the load of letter writing. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 411 Teaching A&P I and II Online Using Video Streaming and a Digital Atlas Repeats as Workshop 709 Room E‐213 Deborah Roiger St. Cloud Technical College This workshop is intended for those instructors thinking about offering A&P online. It will go through the development of resources to enable a successful online teaching environment. Those resources include video‐streamed mini lectures and a digital lab atlas. For the atlas seven hundred digital photos were taken of the models, charts, and slides in the SCTC A&P Lab. The photos were then pinned, and indexed. The student selects a photo with the pins, presses a button and all the labels appear. This gives the online student access to a virtual lab 24/7 wherever he/she has internet access. The resources have also increased success in the classroom‐based course. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 412 Mini‐White Boards & Round Robins: Engaging Them during Lab Reviews Room D‐201 Repeats as Workshop 507 Tom Lehman Coconino Community College How do you get students to review material during lab sessions and know that they’re getting it or just nodding along?

STARS: A Cadaveric Exploration of Anatomy for High School Students and Teachers Maryville University
Students and teachers had the opportunity to learn gross anatomy during an intensive workshop entitled Students and Teachers Anatomical Research Series (STARS). Teachers participated in a two‐week program consisting of lectures, cadaveric dissection, lesson plan development, and student teaching. Students participated in traditional cadaveric dissection and hands‐on small group workstations. Real world correlation of anatomy was incorporated. Daily assessment and testing demonstrated enthusiasm, an increased appreciation and understanding of the human body and retention of the material covered. Teachers indicated the material was applicable to their curriculum and felt the workshop was an excellent opportunity to generate an appreciation of anatomy and an excitement for learning at the high school level. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 702 A Taste of What's New in Physiology and Anatomy Room E‐207 Mount Royal College Katja Hoehn The last 3‐4 years have seen many exciting developments in the areas of physiology and anatomy. In this fly‐through overview, I will present my “top ten” list of the most interesting new developments in this vast field. Some of the items on my list will be updates applicable to the classroom, but for a select few I will delve into more detail. In particular, I’ll present some of the current debates and controversies in the area of taste physiology. My focus will be on basic science rather than new clinical developments. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 703 Revolutionize Your Student Laboratory with LabTutor!

Interested in trying out new activities to get your students actively involved in the learning process? In this workshop, I will present a number of activities that I have used to help my students learn concepts ranging from the transmission of a motor impulse along motor pathways (somatic and autonomic), antibody‐antigen relationships and blood typing, and countercurrent exchange in the convoluted tubule. These activities have been used with classes of up to 35 students.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 705 A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Words: The Use of Technology in Teaching Histology Room E‐205 Vonnie Shields Towson University Thomas Heinbockel Howard University Traditionally, teaching a histology laboratory to undergraduate or graduate students has been accomplished using brightfield light microscopes and glass slide boxes. Typically, the instructor gives a verbal description of specific histological structures, with the addition of notes written on the chalkboard and/or projected using an overhead projector. Subsequently, students are required to locate these structures using their own microscopes. Often, this may be a daunting task because structures may be difficult to locate. This may lead to students becoming frustrated and intimidated, especially if they feel uncomfortable to ask questions in front of their peers. These feelings may be further intensified if there is a relatively high student enrollment in the class. We will describe the results of incorporating technology in the histology laboratory. One technique uses high‐resolution video‐imaging equipment, consisting of a color digital camera mounted to a binocular, compound brightfield microscope. Another technique takes advantage of a virtual microscope set‐ up using digital images. We have found both techniques to be very successful in actively engaging the students in the histology laboratory. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 706 Using digital media to enhance lecture and lab presentations (computer lab) Room E‐208 Repeat of Workshop 310 Greg Reeder Broward College _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 707 Creating Lessons with the Biopac Student Lab System Room E‐215 Repeat of Workshop 413 Jason Cole BIOPAC Systems, Inc. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ Workshop 708 How to Write Letters of Recommendation Room E‐211 Repeat of Workshop 410 Paul A.

Baltimore is an exciting city with a long history. Founded as a port in the early 1700’s, its location near the mouth of the Patapsco River near where it enters the Chesapeake Bay continues to make it important to international shipping. Baltimore’s maritime history is celebrated at the Inner Harbor through the USS Constellation Museum and the Baltimore Maritime Museum, including the World War II‐era US submarine Torsk, US Coast Guard Cutter Taney, and an historic lighthouse once used on the Chesapeake Bay. Fort McHenry, famous for protecting Baltimore from British naval invasion during the War of 1812 and Frances Scott Key’s Star Spangled Banner, lies about 2 miles from the Inner Harbor. Several of Baltimore’s historic neighborhoods are within walking distance of the Renaissance Hotel including the Inner Harbor, Little Italy, Fell’s Point, and Federal Hill. Sites and attractions in the Inner Harbor area include the National Aquarium in Baltimore, Maryland Science Center and Port Discovery children’s museum. Federal Hill Park and the American Visionary Art Museum are also close.
To the east, the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of African‐American History and Culture and the Star‐ Spangled Banner Flag House are located in Historic Jonestown. Farther east lies the Jewish Museum of Maryland. A short cab ride or hop on a northbound Metro or Light Rail train will take you to the Mount Vernon area where you will find the Walters Art Museum, Maryland Historical Society, and other sites. To the west you can visit the Edgar Allen Poe House and Museum and Westminster Hall. Sports fans may enjoy watching the Baltimore Orioles play the Toronto Blue Jays at Camden Yards Tuesday evening. You may also enjoy visiting the ESPN Zone where you can watch your favorite team on big screen TVs while enjoying good food and better company with fellow HAPSters. Shopping and dining are readily available in the Inner Harbor. The Gallery, located in the same building as the Renaissance Hotel, and Harborplace across the street offer a wide variety of shopping and dining possibilities. Retailers include J. Crew, Ann Taylor, Coach, Brooks Brothers, Urban Outfitters and Banana Republic. Twenty small eateries and twelve restaurants offer a variety of dining alternatives in addition to the fine restaurants in the Renaissance Hotel. Historic Lexington Market is a bit farther away and can be reached by Light Rail and Metro. Its many shops feature local cuisine including crab cakes and other Baltimore favorites. Lexington Market also features jazz and rock and roll bands on Fridays and Saturdays. Baltimore is home to many outstanding colleges and universities including the world‐renowned Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland, Baltimore. Researchers from these universities and other institutions will speak with us during our update seminars on Sunday and Monday. The Catonsville campus of Community College of Baltimore County (CCBC) will host two days of workshops. Our campus was one of the two original community colleges in Baltimore County established in 1957. In 1998, Catonsville Community College merged with her sister colleges, Essex Community College and Dundalk Community College to form the Community College of Baltimore County. Located on the Knapp Estate in the southwestern part of the county, the college sits on the rolling acres of a former dairy farm. The campus is easily accessible from I‐95 (via I‐195 and Rolling Road). On behalf of the HAPS 2009 Annual Conference Committee, the Community College of Baltimore County President Dr. Sandra Kurtinitis, and Dean of the School of Math and Sciences Dr. Donna Linksz, we welcome you to our campus and hope you will enjoy our hospitality as much as we’ll enjoy your company.
